Nanna Ditzel designed this Egg chair in 1959 but it’s strikingly original to this day. Emblematic of the best organic design of Scandinavia, this free-floating egg can be anchored to a standing frame or suspended from the ceiling to create a luxurious private nook. A meshwork of stainless steel and wicker makes the chair earthy and sturdy, even though it looks practically weightless. Available from Pierantonio Bonacina.
Terry Hunziker’s stately Washington Park dining table is fit for a feast. A burnished steel frame with a variety of finished wood tops (and two leaf extensions if you’re expecting more company) make this minimalist slab feel more like the platform to a monument. From Sutherland Teak.
Sesam is a picture decal for interior doors. The decal are avalible in ten different motives suitable for various kind of rooms, such as kitchen, childrens room, bathroom and others.

When we first saw Thien Ta Trung and My Ta Trung’s Patchwork chairs pushed up together, we thought we’d come upon the most comfortable bed in the world. Turns out we were only half-wrong (and besides, all good things come in three). These chairs, devised from molded high-density foam and plush piles of quilted fabric tossed to the side during the sofa production process, sport chic monochromatic designs in unique pattern allotments. Available from Periphere.
Maria Jauhiainen knows a thing or two about sublime tableware design. Her glorious Lehti tray has already received accolades from around the globe, such as permanent collection slots at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum and the NYC MoMA. Since Jauhiainen’s background is in jewelry metalsmithing, it’s no wonder the detail on this filigreed piece is so exquisite. Her technique has been described as painting in metal, as she uses the teeniest amount of her medium to mold lightweight pieces. Lehti is photo-etched in brass or silver, and hand-molded into a thin tray. It’s perfect for diminutive valuables, like your favorite piece of heirloom jewelry, but nothing that’s so large it’ll disrupt the harmony of the vision. Available from 2jane.

Available from Sandler Seating.
